Powering Ambition

Slovenian photographer and Sony ambassador Uro Podlogar always held a burning passion to capture raw power on film. He studied photography; first working on automotive projects and then on to the ultimate power machines, helicopters and jet planes. One constant in his quest to capture the beauty of moving machines is his own power preference for his camera monitor, lights, and more - Anton/Bauer.

A recent high-profile project for the Montenegro Army and Bell Helicopters saw Uro at a wide expanse of an airfield in Montenegro documenting the delivery of the first Bell 505 training helicopters to the country. With a wide area to cover and little time at each location to capture the footage, lightweight equipment with power to last was the order of the day.

Monitoring the situation

Anton/Bauer's slimline, lightweight Titon SL90 batteries were the perfect solution for Uro to power his SmallHD 5 and 7 series monitors. The V-mount Titon SL90 battery is great for me, he says, now with one type of battery I can power my Sony FX9 and FS7 and with the same battery I can power my monitors and microphone. Having only one type of battery to power everything on the shoot helped to reduce the amount of equipment required and the overall weight of the gear. Not only are Titon batteries really lightweight, they perfectly balance the camera. Adds Uro .

Besides cameras, monitor and microphones, Titon SL batteries also provide enough power to run lights, I needed to shoot some testimonial interviews with members of the Montenegro government, says Uro , The SL90s ran my Litepanels Gemini 1x1 Soft lights so I could shoot the interviews on the airfield far from any grid power. Adding, And I Also used the USB port to keep my phone charged.

The heat is on

Uro appreciated the extreme -4F to 140F (-20C to 60C) temperature operating range of the Titon batteries. With daily highs upwards of 97F (36C) degrees, Montenegro is one of the hottest countries in Europe and the high temperatures can cause performance issues for some electronic equipment. The batteries worked perfectly, Says Uro , I was on location for four days and I had four batteries. After the initial charge, I didn't need to charge them again. One charge for the entire project. Back home in Slovenia, temperatures can become much colder. In Slovenia, I have used the batteries in the morning when it is 40F (5C) degrees and the performance is just as reliable he adds.

Extra runtime on the runway

The airfield was really long, says Uro , the hangar was on one side and the take-off area for the helicopters was far on the other side which meant there was a lot of walking with gear, so the weight is really important. Weighing in at just 1.39lbs (0.63kg), Titon SL90 batteries are the most powerful yet lightweight and slim batteries available. It was really nice to be as light as possible when I needed to dash in and out of hangars and around the airfield, Says Uro .

Interiors are another area where Uro appreciated the ultra-slim 1.3 (3.5cm) depth of the Titon SL batteries. In the small 505 helicopter there is not much space, so I needed lightweight equipment that didn't take up too much space, he says, the Titon SL batteries were the perfect fit .

In the bag

A versatile lightweight and slim power solution was key to success in Montenegro and, having used the Titon SL batteries, Uro is hooked. The Anton/Bauer Titon SL batteries are part of my kit now . He says, Before I was using one battery for my camera and different battery for my monitor, etc. Now one battery powers everything and I wouldn't change that set up for anything .
